George was very knowledgeable and made our tour a delightful experience. We were able to get in all areas with no priblems. I felt sorry forthe people who had to stand in the long lines. Very much worth paying for the extra!

I had Dennis as a tour guide and he was just unbelievable! He made it so easy to understand everything and you could see that he loves his job and his effort that he gave. Dennis always had a smile on his face and he made sure that he talked to everyone in the group. Thank you Dennis for such a wonderful experience!

I arrived earlier and also find out then my tour will be different time., but because there's was another tour starting I was joining them. I'm glad I did because it was amazing. Tour guide Silvia was very knowledgeable and clearly proud of "her city" and very friendly. She was open to any questions anyone have. I absolutely enjoyed.

The most interesting place to visit in Rome and you definitely want to purchase a skip-the-lines tour here. we were able to visit both the colosseum and the vatican in one day by booking these tours, a feat that we learned should not be attempted by persons well over the age of 70, But we did it and enjoyed both, an altogether priceless day!
